The United States and its allies have attacked various Muslim countries on false pretexts in the past two decades. Each time the purpose was to capture vital energy resources, to protect the illegitimate state of Israel and to marshal all the oil and gas resources to build a global empire under the control of the international banking families, “banksters” as the writers in the West now call them. Outside the Nato countries, the Nato troops can only be found in oil and gas rich regions, or regions through which these energy resources can be transported.

The attacks on Muslim countries began after the Soviet Union had been dismantled and the world was led to believe, through media propaganda, that the US was the sole superpower left on the globe. This deception did not take account of the fact that the Soviet nuclear arsenal was basically intact and that its forces were very much a force to be reckoned with. The public mind was inundated with phrases like “unipolar world’, “sole superpower”, “the pre-eminent power” and so on.

Two decades down the road, the reality is that the Soviet-China block has finally come to the conclusion that the only way to check the ever-increasing menace of US military power, particularly after the mysterious 9/11 event, is through military force.

Through a sustained control of US education and media, these banking families and their agents have manufactured an increasingly fragile “consent” in favour of war against Muslim “terrorist states”. The ploy of terrorism has been used to convert USA into a police state through pre-drafted legislation. A “terrorist” incident occurs and legislation curtailing liberties of US people is immediately rammed through the Congress. The engineered concept of terrorism is at the root of all dictatorial legislation in the US, as well as the pretext of spreading its forces in every nook and corner of the globe.

The US government and the Congress are stooges of the banking families and dare not utter a word against their wishes. Whatever is being done is being done at the behest of these families. The National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA) signed by President Barack Obama on December 31, 2011, allows the US forces to capture any one, whom they suspect of terrorism, and intern him or her indefinitely. No appeal in any court of law against such indefinite detention will be allowed. The much projected American strategists like Zbigniew Brzezinski, Henry Kissinger, Huntington and many others are no more than giving respectability to its inhuman programme to control the world and enslave mankind.

Simultaneously, through a manipulated housing bubble, these banking families, who are masters of financial manipulation, are destroying the American middle class, which is the real source of all resistance to the dictatorship of the banking families. According to a report, eight million homes have been foreclosed since 2007, and another 10,000 per month are expected to be foreclosed till the end of the present economic crisis. Mr Mowahid Hussain, Attorney-at-Law and policy analyst based in Washington, told me that “tent cities” are now cropping up in America.

All the above-mentioned steps, viz destruction of the American middle class, dictatorial legislation and wars for capturing all energy resources, are aimed at bringing the entire mankind under one world government. This will require a major war, a world war. The Project of New American Century report commissioned by Dick Cheney clearly states that the US (meaning thereby the banking cabal) has a small window of opportunity in which to destroy all adversaries and prevent the rise of any major threat to it, i.e. a major threat to the thrust of these families towards a New World Order.

Probably, the destruction of Iran is the next step in control of oil and gas resources and securing the Rothschild state of Israel. By controlling Iran, the US forces in service of their corporate masters will be able to cut off a major source of oil and gas supplies to China and will have a huge base at the disposal of its troops from where to enter and attack Central Asia and threaten Russia. Brzezinski has clearly stated that the power that controls Eurasia will rule it and hence the entire world. Therefore, the attack on Iran must take place no matter how high the cost. When will that happen is a matter of time.

Professor Michel Chossudovsky has stated: “The launching of an outright war using nuclear warheads against Iran has been on the active drawing board of the Pentagon since 2005. If such a war were to be launched, the entire Middle East Central Asian region would flare up. Humanity will be precipitated into World War III scenario.” In the month of February alone, the Swedish Foreign Minister called such an attack “stupidity”, the Turkish Foreign Minister called it a “disaster”, the Japanese Prime Minister told Ehud Barak that it would be “extremely dangerous”. India rejected sanctions on Iran. It was reported on February 16 that the Russian Chief of Staff, General Nikolai Markov, had stated that Russia was closely monitoring the situation. It was also reported that “the Kremlin has ordered the military to draft options for a Russian response to any foreign attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.”

Wikileaks has released a cable, which reveals that Yukiya Amano, Head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), was “solidly in the US court on every strategic decision, from high-level personnel appointments to the handling of Iran’s nuclear weapons programme.” The US government has been the greatest killing machine on the face of earth - it has killed more unarmed human beings in the world than any other power in history. Its ability to lie and deceive is also unprecedented. It lied to the whole world about Iraq, about Afghanistan, about Bin Laden. It lied to its people before and during the two World Wars. And it is lying about Iran and will continue to do so, until it has achieved its objective. It will then move on to a new target and new lies. The average American does not lie or deceive, but the American government does.
